Air Conditioning Maintenance: Tune-Ups in Raleigh, NC

Most of our friends and neighbors (like you) have a twice-a-year maintenance service. We call them “tune-ups” because they ensure your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system runs better and longer.

In autumn, we make sure your heating system is ready for some of the extreme winter weather we see here. In spring, we check out your AC system to ensure you’ll enjoy a comfortable, safe summer season in Raleigh.

Most of our Wake County homes were built between 2000 and 2009. This means you may have already replaced your original HVAC system, or it’s nearing the end of its official life span.

With proper maintenance, AC and heating systems can last 15 years or even longer. We service all brands of Raleigh AC units. Call 704-960-1775 or contact Sky Air Conditioning & Heating to learn more about our commercial and residential maintenance programs.

Commercial AC Maintenance

Commercial AC systems are usually roof-mounted, but some are located in hard-to-reach spaces. Your Sky HVAC team is specially trained and certified to repair, replace, and maintain your commercial HVAC system, wherever it is on your property.

We provide AC maintenance for:

  • Banks
  • Churches
  • Healthcare/assisted living facilities
  • Hotels/motels
  • Malls
  • Manufacturing/industrial properties
  • Multifamily housing
  • Offices
  • Recreational facilities
  • Restaurants
  • Schools
  • Server rooms
  • Stores/retail

Residential AC Maintenance

Thanks to technology, homeowners have more options than ever before for affordable, energy-efficient residential air conditioning. We will assess your square footage, the number of family members (including the number of four-legged, furry residents), and what your needs are for comfortable cooling this summer.

Maintenance is not an option for the majority of Raleigh property owners. We want to get the most from our existing HVAC systems for as long as possible. HVAC maintenance not only protects your heating and cooling system, it also gives you better, safer IAQ (indoor air quality).

Maintenance also provides:

  • Enhanced comfort
  • Fewer repairs
  • Improved energy efficiency for lower electric bills
  • Warranty compliance

Maintenance saves money. But don’t let money stop you from protecting your HVAC investment and family health. Ask about financing options if you need HVAC repair or replacement for your Raleigh commercial property or home. Call 704-960-1775 or contact Sky Air Conditioning & Heating with questions.

How Raleigh Air Conditioner Maintenance Saves Money

An emergency service call is expensive. Depending on where you live in the USA, you may pay as much as $50-$150/hour for emergency HVAC service. A refrigerant recharge can cost $100-$350. HVAC and AC maintenance are more cost-effective.

If any service technician shows up wearing dirty, raggy clothing, driving a beat-up van, and smells like cigarette smoke (or worse), don’t even open the door. How can they respect your property when they don’t take pride in themselves or their company?

Sky Air Conditioning & Heating professionals are proud of the level of expertise we offer our Raleigh friends and neighbors (like you). When you schedule maintenance service, you can be sure we’ll take care of your property and clean up our work area before we leave. Call 704-960-1775 or contact us to ask about HVAC maintenance.
